How to Tell if You’re a Book Junkie #amreading

Directions: Mark an ‘x’ for each statement that applies to you.

[ ] 1. In lines or at doctor’s offices, when everyone else around me is tapping out messages on their cell phones, my face is buried in a book.

[ ] 2. If a novel I’m reading has a plot twist I wholeheartedly disagree with, I will complain, out loud, to my book.

[ ] 3. When I discover a new book I’d like to read, the first thing I do is to list it as “want to read” on Goodreads. Then I blog about it. 🙂

[ ] 4. If I reach for a book, my household pets jump onto my favorite reading chair.

[ ] 5. My favorite historical figure is Booker T. Washington.

[ ] 6. When I meet new people, the first question I ask is, “What kinds of books do you like to read?”

[ ] 7. The only thing better than buying new books is when someone reads—and likes—a book I’ve recommended to them.

[ ] 8. The phrase “’book’ an appointment” confuses me.

[ ] 9. If I see someone mistreating a book, I will shield it with my body.

[ ] 10. I read posts entitled “How to Tell if You’re a Book Junkie.”

If you marked ONE OR MORE of the above boxes, you are a bookie junkie and are hereby awarded this badge. Wear it with pride. 🙂

  1. Oh, Eve, I’m a lost cause!!😀 I tick all but two of the boxes (only pets are fish!) This is great and has me laughing out loud. Oh, just finished a book last night, best go and add that to my Goodreads read list! Enjoy being a book junkie.

  2. This test seems more like a trap! One or more?! That’s like asking someone if they breathe or not. Psh! I was expecting it to be like… five or more, but apparently I am grouped in with these ‘book junkies’ of which you speak. Yet, I don’t feel that I should be lumped together with these… these… ADDICTS! How dare you, Eve!

      1. Lol I was thinking that. I’ll see if I can cook something up. If I do, I’ll definitely make sure to give you credit for the inspiration.
